Do I have too much filtering on/in my 20-gallon?

I have a 20-gallon fresh water tank with 2-black moor goldfish in it. I have a Bio Wheel 50 power filter and an undergravel with two small powerheads. Do you think this is too much for this tank?

No such thing as to much filtering it would just be the flow to worry about... you don't want them in a whirlpool lol

No such thing as too much filtration with goldfish! Though the UGF is going to prove to be a nightmare to keep clean with goldfish-you are forewarned! I hope you have plans to upgrade them to a bigger home. You are overstocked with a 2 moors in a 20gal-they really should be in a 30 or 40gal
